Top 10 Movies with the Best Car Chase Scenes

It may be one of the most used and abused movie cliches, but when done correctly, the car chase scene can be the highlight of any film. This list is a collection of the movies that did the car chase scene correctly.

The Top Ten

1 Bullitt Bullitt Product Image

The original car chase right here. Great cars, great camera angles. Still better than car chases today!

They keep reusing the soundtrack from this to try and improve all the wanna be car chases in lesser films. It's pretty funny to hear Steve's double clutching when the hero is driving an automatic Chevy.

The coolest cars and the coolest camera angles

Saw the movie in 1068, and shortly after went out and bought a 1968 Mustang Fastback (for $3000 Canadian, right out of the show room)

2 Matrix Reloaded Matrix Reloaded Product Image

The most spectacular car chase scene in movie history, with never seen images

The greatest chase scene in movie history

3 Ronin Ronin Product Image

The best realistic chase scene. Feels like you are right
In the action. Even us Yanks like it. If French were so great it would be La Google. "Oui?"

La Peripherique... need one say more, except here they do it the wrong way round!
(And for all you stupid Yanks, look it up on Google! )

Probably the most realistic car chase scene ever.

Maneuvering in the tightest alleys and car on the wrong side
It should be in first place

4 The Blues Brothers The Blues Brothers Product Image

Physics? What the heck is physics? Everything in that last car chase was ridiculously excessive and illogical, and because of that, it is hands down the best one I've ever seen. I could not stop laughing! I had to watch the whole thing over and over again. Just fantastic!

You can't compare anything to being chased down by a country band, American Nazis, the police, the military, and tons of other groups of people.

that scene through the mall is a classic

Great chase scene with the 2 best car pileups ever!

5 The Fast and the Furious The Fast and the Furious Product Image

holy crap, that film, was so freakin amazing. tuned cars, lots of explosions, awesome music, it was intense. i've never seen better. #1 all the way

6 The Bourne Identity The Bourne Identity Product Image

The one in Bourne Supremacy is better when he's in the taxi cab. This is still a good car chase scene though.

Spectacular and realistic car chase scene, the best I've seen out of any movie, including Matrix, Ronin, Italian Job, etc.
Not over the top (special effects such as The Matrix) and believable.

7 Transporter Transporter Product Image
8 Gone in 60 Seconds Gone in 60 Seconds Product Image

he does hiw OWN stunts people. That make all the difference

It's not just about the chase its about the car and come on who doesn't like that mustang

What a great scene! Nick cage was so convincing, and it really is becoming a classic.

all the way throuh the hole

9 The French Connection The French Connection Product Image

How THIS MOVIE didn't make the top ten list tells me that WAY too many kids are voting on this website......

I agree. The only movies this thirteen year old kids ever saw is the "Fast and furious" crap.

This should be #2

10 The Italian Job (2003) The Italian Job (2003) Product Image

Since this movie, the mini cooper became my dream car

The Contenders

11 Death Proof Death Proof Product Image

Uh... no CGI, and Zoe Bell trying to stay on the hood of the car at speeds in excess of 100 mph... do me a favor, watch it and then come back and vote.

12 Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines Product Image

The best, most destructive car/truck/everything chase scene of all time.

13 The Bourne Supremacy The Bourne Supremacy Product Image

One of the best ever in my opinion. Even the scenes where he wrecks and crashes into other vehicles seems very realistic. Kudos to the director and crew who shot that.

With out a doubt the best car chase ever, it has my head wrecked trying to find the song to it

The best car chase of all time with the greatest ending ever.

One of the best car chases thats actually realistic.

The pursuit of the tanker truck is pure action and violence, well-filmed and well-choreographed. You can watch it again and again and again.

The first real car chase scene in history and is still unmatched by all of the above. 15 minutes was how long the last chase scene took towards the end.
